God’s View Of Our Problems-Part 12
May 16, 2014
1 Peter 2:24– “who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed.”
Do you realize, though Jesus did only what the Father sent Him to do, He did everything perfectly. Yet even in that He was denied, He was beaten, He was judged by wicked men and He was crucified. Jesus suffered here on this earth. My friend, what if it is God’s will for you on this earth to suffer? Compared to Jesus Christ, how should you respond? You are to respond the same way Jesus did, “Father, not my will but your will be done.”
My friend, your problems could never have gotten to you without God knowing it. You need to see it from His perspective, knowing that compared to eternity this is not even a second in time. Jesus came to seek and to save that which was lost and in so doing, he bore our sin upon the cross.
